CD82 Is a Marker for Prospective Isolation of Human Muscle Satellite Cells and Is Linked to Muscular Dystrophies

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell In this article, Alexander, Rozkalne, and colleagues describe the identification of CD82 as a prospective marker for human muscle stem cells. Knockdown of CD82 in myogenic cells reduces myoblast proliferation and CD82 expression is reduced in dystrophic muscle stem cells, suggesting a link with muscle disease.
